Carrie’s scenes with Yevgeny were highlights of this episode. Costa Ronin is very compelling and charismatic, so I’m really curious to see what really happened during Carrie’s dark 7-month blackout. Haqqani’s scenes with his traitorous son were intense! It was a mistake keeping the son alive just to return to conspire with the Pakistani lady, but what’s a father gonna do lol? And FYI, it was the reviews that said episode 4 was a major one for Maury Sterling, not something I just made up in my head.February 24, 2020 at 10:49 am #1203358827
Of course; there is just a lot going on in the fourth episode, so I do not understand why anyone would highlight Maury Sterling in it. It might be Beau Bridges’s tape for example.February 24, 2020 at 2:08 pm #1203359099
Riley, have you seen any episodes beyond the fourth?February 24, 2020 at 2:54 pm #1203359111
No, that is all that is available on the press website.February 26, 2020 at 9:18 pm #1203362087
We’re still in the ‘setup’ phase of the season but it’s been quite compelling nonetheless. Good start for the final season.March 1, 2020 at 8:34 am #1203365796

I’m floored! Did they really just do that? “Homeland”‘s still got it. It’s uncanny how topical this season is turning out to be. Beau Bridges could totally get into guest actor drama with this episode.March 2, 2020 at 7:20 pm #1203368171
That was fantastic. Maybe the president has been taken hostage?March 3, 2020 at 11:36 pm #1203370145
That was such a great episode, met all the hype and exceeded it. And yes, good tape for Beau Bridges, he came off quite ‘presidential’.March 4, 2020 at 1:39 am #1203370322
I also loved the first four episodes so far, in my opinion, all seasons of Homeland have been excellent with the exception of the third. I love the supporting characters and I know who they are, so I guess that is a matter of good memory and not being distracted while you watch.
It is interesting to see Sam Trammell is this role after True Blood, very different and seemingly unsympathetic character. Costa Ronin is a favorite of mine after The Americans, he is excellent, I hope he books more big roles after Homeland.
I suppose that critics are making a big deal out of Max storyline because is the first story that he has that is not related to Carrie, but so far has been the least interesting part of the season, also, it seems pretty obvious that he will not stay the lucky amulet of this camp for much longer….March 4, 2020 at 4:57 pm #1203371248
Thats who he is !! haha. Indeed Trammell is ery different here.March 4, 2020 at 8:11 pm #1203371400
“Chalk Two Down” might be even better than “Chalk One Up”.March 8, 2020 at 12:08 am #1203374580
Episode Title: “Chalk Two Down”

I couldn’t believe things went where they did here! “Homeland” is seriously gunning for a returning Drama Series nomination in its final season, and watch it snatch a slot from one of your favs! Claire Danes is always riveting as Carrie, but I’ve been just as enthralled by Mandy Patinkin, who’s proven in the past that he doesn’t need Danes around for an Emmy nomination of his own. I’m not looking forward to where the story is going for Carrie based on the previews, b/c of course she will be blamed in some way for the peace talks failing and Warner’s tragic death. On the other hand, I wonder if Sam Trammell can pull off playing this Trump surrogate. Well, maybe he’ll be more nuanced than that walking orange clown, but it’s nice seeing Trammell land this plum role after years on “True Blood” being under-utilized. And I told you rude bitches about Maury Sterling, didn’t I? You’re welcome lol.
